Eat, Drink, And Meet Mary Only Halfway From Your House With Mezzoman

08Feb08

Mezzoman gives you a great way to find a restaurant, or other type of entertainment, between two locations. For example, Jane wants to get some sushi and doesn’t want to drive all the way up Jack’s hill to meet him. Enter Mezzoman. Jane just needs to enter in her address and Jack’s address and Mezzoman will find sushi places right smack dab in the middle of where they both are. Alright, it’s not exactly in the middle, but you’ll get recommendations for places around the center point. It’s not rocket-science, but it sure is handy! Oh, Mezzo means half or middle in Italian – now do you get the name? Here’s my screencast tour of Mezzoman:

  1. I like your clever title for this post! I’m also liking some of the fresh look you’re getting with the new Camtasia. I didn’t comment on your previous post where you tried the PiP intro, so I’ll do it here. I’m not quite sure why, but I wondered if it would have worked better if you had put your picture in the bottom left corner of the screen, with you angled slightly to the right. (I’m speaking from the viewer’s perspective.) It’s funny, but if you were using your picture to sign off, I think I might like to see that on the lower right corner of the screen. I think it might even be worth trying the start position in the top left corner. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we move from left to right when reading a screen. Perhaps I’m just being completely irrational. (That does happen sometimes.) Rational or not, that’s my Saturday morning feedback on the PiP experiment.

    While I’m rambling… from my rather long ago perspective, I think 30 is an absolutely wonderful age. Enjoy every moment of the entire new decade as much as you possibly can! –Paul

  2. I really enjoy your screencasts. I’m wondering if you can give any tips on avoiding distracting vocal noises, such as swallowing, breathing, sniffling, or other unintended sounds. When I make screencasts, my microphone picks up on all of this unwanted noise. Thanks,
